the second part arrived in the post today but it was the subbed not dubbed version much to my annoyance,tried to do it the honest way and failed,already spoken to someone about getting the version i want.
The anime is better (than the films)
that is being acquired as well. :wink:
Heres a taster for bits (not all from the anime)

I watched a bit more of 'Sons of Anarchy'(season 4). Just the last episode to go now.

I then caught up with more 'Mad Men'. Don had a meeting with an old flame of his and it didn't go well!

And tonight I have not long finished watching Rocky 3. Im feeling all pumped up now! Not good considering the time of night :lol: . Brilliant film, as were 1 and 2. Four is okay and the last 2..... :twisted:

I tell you what though, I must be getting softer now im a bit older, I actually had a huge lump in my throat when Micky died and could quite easily have shed a tear. The amount of times I have seen this film and hardly flinched at that scene and now..... well, im shocked.

Mind you, always used to watch this with my dad.

The 6th Day. Pretty decent even if it wasn't as shooty/explodey as most Arnie films.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Have just recently watched Limitless - an interesting premise, the whole smart drug thing that cropped up in the nineties appears to have died a death.
And Legion - wafer thin plot, what,why,what happened,what for,what next? And more shell casings on the floor than Lord of War.
As for Sucker Punch

Is a top guy film about chicks and their inate ability to withdraw into multiple layers of reality when in crisis. :shock:

Saw Titanic 3D on Wednesday.

I know it's obviously just another money spinner for Cameron but to me really the 3D added nothing and in fact I'd say it might as well not have been there, still it's a pretty decent film overall as a 3D film though it is poor.

I watched the last three episodes of 'Luck'(season 1) - ironically, on the same day as The Grand National. It actually did seemed a little bit better, but the main plotline is still a bit too opaque. Perhaps, that is why I haven't warmed to it.

Just watched John Carter.
Have read hundreds of negative reviews saying how it is 2 hours of boring fluff with nothing going for it.
I came away with a head buzzing in a way I have not had since watching the likes of Return of the Jedi and Willow for the first time.
Brilliant film, good story, good pacing and some nice gore for a disney film :twisted:
Totally undeserving of the hammering it took and I feel it is down to the lack of imagination in kids these days....

Browsing on netflix I decided to watch South Park for the first time.

40 episodes later and I'm still going, it's just utter, utter genius! The parody on high school musical, awesome-o, cartmanland, the release of the Sony PSP and many, many more.
